Upper East Canyon

  • Grade context: US


The climbs in this area are best reached from the northeast parking area. They can be reached from the other parking area, but it is a longer hike that involves gaining and then losing elevation. There is a well-worn, large animal path between the slope beneath the Middle Buttresses and the slope on the east side of the canyon. From the parking area, hike due south aiming for the canyon. The first few hundred meters can be hiked on the road, or you can turn off onto animal trails to the left so as not to lose elevation. Either way, follow trails due south, crawl under a barbed wire fence, and you will come to the large arroyo draining the canyon to the south and a huge bowl to the left (east). From here, it is best to aim southeast, left of the bottom of the canyon, and hike up the grassy slopes to the top of The Stash Pile. From there, scramble down on one of the many animal trails to the base of the Stash Pile or, if headed to El Dedo, stay high and traverse the slope so as to reach the top of El Dedo. Once there, scramble down around the south and west side of El Dedo for the easiest access to the base of the climbs. From the northeast parking area: 1.4km, +250m, 30 minutes.
